Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened to cool room temp
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar make sure it is fresh and soft
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut lightly packed
  • cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat butter and both sugars for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed. Add egg and extract and beat until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture, beating until just combined. Add coconut, almonds, and ½ cup chocolate chips. Stir until well combined.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon portions of dough and place the dough balls a couple inches apart on the cookie sheets. Top each ball of dough with a few additional chocolate chips (this makes for a prettier cookie).
  • Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes, until the edges are beginning to turn golden brown and the very center is still slightly underdone. If your dough balls are smaller or larger than 2 tablespoons, adjust bake time accordingly. Make sure not to overbake. The cookies should still be soft in the center when you remove them from the oven.**
  • Place the baking sheets on wire racks and allow the cookies to cool completely. 

Notes

*Bake time: Pulling your cookies from the oven when they are still slightly underdone will result in the perfect texture - soft centers with crisp edges. Oven times vary, and the size of your dough balls may vary slightly from mine. Keep an eye on them.
